Heading for better weather??

Goodmorning everybody!

Today it will be still rather cold and even rainy. But themn the thermometer should show some higher temperatures, creeping up slowly but steady! Oh, if that might be true, it would be great!
Last two days I didn;t do all too much, except for the doggie walking.
I misunderstaood Jan telling me about the 2 weeks that Heidi should have the cast on. That wasn;t so, She got rid of that yesterday, but was told it would take for sure another two weeks to heal completely and that she would be able to walk as usual again.
Okay, that is better news.
Yesterday, as well as Monday I went to her place for the doggies. And yesterday she just was home again from the hospital, when I returned with the two rascals.
And she was without the cast, hoorray! She was a bit afraid to take off her boots, silly girl, so I helped her out of them, very carefully and brought her her pair of slippers LOL!
Then said to her that she really should take it easy with the walking around, no bunny jumping yet should be done, her ankle still is very weak and she will have to "learn"to walk on it again, but slowly!
She is a very stubborn girl, so I just hope she will keep to the advice everybody is giving her.

I promised you to take a picture of the new knitting project I have started. It should become an overthrow for the couch. Loooooooooong project LOL!
I've finished one part. I want to make it in several parts, all in a different pattern. Perhaps it will look nice whan it all is finished.
Here the 1st part.
And here the beginning of the 2nd part( I like that pattern)
And here a photo of one of the latest seaters I've made for myself. I am happy with it, it is soft and really warm!
I am not at all a first class knitter, but I like it. I really love some sweaters you see with cables in it but it's hard to do. But may be I will try a simple cable on one of the parts of this overthrow( still thinking about it LOL)/

So that's the thing I am busy with when watching tv, it keeps me from fighting against the shutting down of my eye-lids ROFL!
Today I really will have to do some shopping, and if there is still some energy left, some housework too(like ironing or clearing out my little desk where I keep all the pens and paperclips and tape and all that and the computer stuff too)
We'll see what we can do, grin!
Today I have a kit for you, that perhaps isn;t all to "general", even might be hard to use but I stumbled uppon a few elements and thought I might make an Egyptian kit.
Hope somebody can use that.
It's named "Nefertari's Dream". Arlene told me she had some trouble coming up with clusters for it, but I think she did a wonderful job!( I very much like the cluster with the cat)
Have a lovely day!

Hello and Thank you Kyra and Arlene for these lovely items. You've both done great...

Dear Kyra,

Thank you very much for this great kit. I'm very interested in archaeology and the old Egypt in special. So your kit is very much to my liking; particularly the papers are absolutely marvellous.

My goodness! You have really been busy with the knitting needles. I love the sweater. It has a lovely pattern to it. Your sofa throw should look great with the different patterns. Are you using colors or staying neutral?

When my kids were growing up, I did a lot of knitting and crocheting of sweaters and skirts. I also sewed most of our clothes and household curtains and such. Maybe that's why I don't do it so much anymore. I haven't used a sewing machine in years.

Now I'm off to maybe work on my crochet project for a while. You inspire me! Have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Thank you so much for your egyptian kit, it reminds me to all the books I read of Christian Jacq who has always been fascinated by Egypt.
Thank you very much !!!
Take care, and have a wonderful day ! Hugs,

What beautiful knitting you do, that is one trait my mother never got me to try, she knitted or crocheted or embroidered or quilted all the time, I have no patience for it, wish I did. My sister Kathy knits too. I am either the reader or scrap booker. I do love taking photos and improving on them...almost a compulsion...LOL!
lovely sweater and I ADORE the throw you are making.
Thanks for the lovely kit and send on thanks to Arlene as well. Have a great weekend ahead. Ours is supposed to be nice, so am hoping to get some plants ready in the front of the house....ROFL. Hugs, Mat

Wow! That sweater is beautiful. I wish I could knit (other than pot holders that no one can use w/o burning themselves through the holes). You are really good.

Thanks for the new kit. Egyptian is good sometimes. I have a picture of a lady on a camel that I could never finish till now. Thanks a whole bunch!!
